What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“MSS is still in Alpha, and Early Access is perfect to get some feedback, test new features and mechanics to improve the game and make it fun and enjoyable.

If you want to support MSS during Early Access, we would love to have you. Otherwise, we recommend to wait a more stable and improved build.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is hard to estimate but I can roughly expect that MSS will be almost ready within 8-14 months. You can track the development of the game via TWITTER.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of MSS will contain the following features:
  • Keep your stores afloat against many hazards: from climatic disasters and different diseases like a plague to a bad decision of your king that will unleash a war.
  • Explore the world with unique characters, events, buildings, and secrets.
  • Unravel the mysteries of the kingdom while looking for unusual and exotic objects.
  • Equip your employees to perform different functions.

  • Unlock new skills and advantages by praying in the church, including the ability to create new objects, be better at haggling prices and the ability to manage the kingdom at your whim with clear consequences.
  • Visit the seer to reveal future events and hire their services to change them.
  • Hire warriors in taverns, choose the ones you like the most and send them to great adventures.
  • Have fun with your friends in an online experience that promotes communication and cooperation to succeed in the kingdom as merchants.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“MSS changing rapidly with new features and content. What you can expect:
  • Manage your own stores, from ordering objects to setting prices.
  • The world of MSS reacts to your decisions, including prices, support for the crown and the church and the reputation of your stores.
  • Combine components and objects to create higher-value stock and exchange or sell them
  • Modify and order your employees to work one way or another depending on your style of play.
  • Learn different skills from different fields such as: fishing, farming, combat and more.
  • Depending on the king or queen that governs, there will be laws that will suit you more or less depending on your financial strategy.
  • Shape your houses with deformation tools and features.
  • You can go from house to house fulfilling orders to get money or unique items.
  • Build and manage your medieval stores and influence the economy of the kingdom.
  • Customize the look of your character, the type of pet you prefer.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“MSS launched at a low price considering how early in development the game was. As the game matures and its content grows the price of the game will be reviewed.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Players’ feedback is the best way to improve the game in the right direction, and I am going to carefully track community ideas and thoughts with every new update. Players can also follow MSS in socials to track the game developing:

About This Game

"Hello, the developer speaking. As many of you probably noticed there was no updates in a while... Let me explain: the problem was with my lack of knowledge and my inexperience in this world of game development. This was my very first Steam game and 1 year ago, my pc started crashing and I got several blue screens.. My project got corrupted badly, to the point its impossible to improve or finish. So I came to the decision to make the game completely free. The game is playable however not finished and there are bugs in it. This project has helped me a lot to improve my work and as a person, I have learned a lot and many thanks to the players who loved this project so much."

Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator is a medieval management, exploration and adventure game currently under development by Breakfast Studio.

Create, manage and expand your merchant empire, explore the borders of the world and properly manage your stores to become the most important trader in the kingdom.

Manage your stores, organize your workers, deliver orders, exchange and create unique items, unlock new skills and advantages, hire warriors for adventures, explore the world, resist global events like a plague or a war, plan your financial strategy supporting or confronting the crown and the church, alter the economy of the kingdom and its laws and face consequences of your decisions.

Depending on the king or queen that governs, there will be laws that will suit you more or less depending on your way of playing. The world of MSS reacts to every decision and even prices in stores, punishing mistakes with your reputation. Be careful and make wise decisions, visit the seer to reveal future events and prepare yourself to them.

There are some problems you might experience in the Alpha version of the game:
  • bugs
  • freezing
  • loss of saved games

If the essential game mechanics is attractive and you want to give your support to Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator while you are in early access, we would love to have you. Otherwise, we recommend waiting until MSS exceeds the alpha stage when the game is more stable, and the game mechanics are more developed. I am committed to converting Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator into the best possible game, and your help during this early phase of development is crucial for us to achieve our goal.

If it intrigues you to know where we will take Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator, consult our roadmap and the development vlogs that I publish several times per month.
